Taylor achieved one of the most remarkable pitching records of the 20th century:
For five years, from June 20, 1901 to August 9, 1906, he was never once relieved
in a game. During the span he started and completed 187 games, including one 19-inning
and one 18-inning affair, and finished 15 in relief of others. On one occasion he
pitched both ends of a doubleheader.
